One Long Journey is the extraordinary story of Lohit Datta-Barua, who was born into poverty along the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra River in the remote state of Assam in northeastern India. As a boy, he walked into the beggar and leper colonies of homeless people and untouchables while rounding up his family’s wandering cows. Caste-based taboos blocked his marriage to the woman he loved. Secrets surrounding his birth haunted him, and death stalked him. Lincoln’s Gettysburg address inspired him to make the seemingly impossible journey to America with $7 in his pocket. He achieved a high-level career worldwide as an oil and gas engineer. As an inspiring contributor to social justice he continues to touch people’s lives.
